Les (petites) vertus de la farce. Imaginaire et société dans un théâtre populaire du Kérala

Abstract : Kanniyar kali, a series of parodies found in the Palghat district, is examined by considering a ritual performance organized and performed by high-status Nayars. The show exemplifies a rather conservative view of society, marked by the affirmation of various inequalities that echo each other: between males and females, parents and children, high-status and low-status castes.
